Well, as always, there's more than one way to do it:
The answers to my question came from the following people:
Ian Camm <firstname.lastname@example.org> who suggested using 'enscript'
Waghode Sanjay <SWaghode@caxton.com> who supplied the following command line:
>Try this , you can reduce or increase these parameter for font size , line
>spacing , no of lines .
>lp -dPrinter -olandscape -ofs -ofp12.6 -ovsi5.7 -otl66 FileToPrint
Matthew Mauzy <email@example.com> who suggested the following excellent
Try '/usr/lib/lp/postscript/postprint -x0.5 -s10' The -x sets the left

"John Saalwaechter" <firstname.lastname@example.org> who improved on the

> $FOLD -w 80| $PR -e4 -l$rows -o$offset -h stdin|$POSTPRINT -s8 -l0|$LP
>(I have to use "lpr -l" to print postscript because all my print
>servers are NT.)
And last, but not least, myself. :) Through some further digging, the
solution I ended
up using was the excellent utility 'a2ps'
